Starting on Monday, March 6, Douglas County Route 458 (N1000 Road) is scheduled to be closed for construction at two locations:
• At E1600 Road, the road will be closed to kick off a major road improvement project between E1500 and E1600. This road closure will be in place for roughly nine months. The work will proceed in phases to ensure access to affected properties. This project will improve safety on Route 458 in several ways. The vertical alignment will be modified to increase sight distance. Paved shoulders will be added to improve traffic safety. Drainage culverts will be replaced and lengthened, and an eastbound right turn lane will be added at E1600 Road. The work also includes resurfacing E1600 Road south of N1000 Road.
• 0.4 miles west of E2200 Road, the road will be closed for roughly five months for bridge repair work. The contractor will remove and replace sections of the concrete bridge deck and approach roadways, and install new guardrails.
